Mallika Sherawat is at the Cannes Film Festival to unveil the promo of her first home production Hissss, along with brother and co-producer Vikram Lamba. She has planned for an unusual event to create a buzz about her film.

On May 16 at the Hotel Majestic on the Cannes croissette, the actress will be seen performing a nag pooja, followed by a dance with a 15 foot python wrapped around her.

The 220 pound snake has been specially brought in from the US and Mallika has been rehearsing with it for the last four days.  

Apparently the nag puja-dance will be unlike anything ever before seen at the global film festival and market held each year in the south of France.  

The source reveals, "Mallika will also unveil the theatrical trailer of her film Hissss by a top Hollywood company and will also announce the release date."

The actress will wear a specially designed dress by a top designer while her style team, led by Claus Hjelmbak and Ivan Bitton, will style her look. They had also styled her last appearance at Cannes look, when she had walked the red carpet with Jackie Chan for their film The Myth."

Hissss is an Indo-American production starring Mallika Sherawat, Irrfan Khan, Divya Dutta and directed by Jennifer Lynch. Mallika plays a snake woman in Hissss who comes to wreak vengeance on her detractors.
